Environment Minister Reaching out to Albertans

Environment Minister Shannon Phillips invites Albertans to learn more about the province’s Climate Leadership Plan through telephone town halls on December 13 and 14.

The province-wide town halls are part of the government’s commitment to provide Albertans with accurate information on the Climate Leadership Plan and its pillars, including the carbon levy and rebates, ending coal pollution, and energy efficiency.

“This is an opportunity for Albertans to learn more about the Climate Leadership Plan – our made-in-Alberta solution to the very real issue of climate change. It is also a chance to hear directly from Albertans about their ideas, questions and concerns as we move together into a new era of climate leadership.”
